on the threshold of a dream
I'm afraid I must disagree with PDV. I've had yahoo for ages also, and it's been fairly dependable over the long haul. But lately, it's started losing half of what I send... or delivering it days later. Toe's having the same problem... and yahoo support has been anything but supportive!
Do I still use it? Yes. Probably more than my other accounts combined... primarily because I don't have to fight spam on yahoo nearly as much as on other free servers.
But if you send something important, copy it to your sent folder cause it may or may not get there... and if someone doesn't answer you, don't assume they're at fault... they may not have gotten anything to answer!
